I'd used leather brown with an umber wash as a primer on this Irish bartender from the western/savage worlds part of the Chronoscope range. I then thought that the skin tone looked quite good and tried to highlight it up to a black/African American person' s skin. I used a 5050 mix of African Shadow from Scale 75 and Troll Claws from Army Painter.
I have no idea what rules I will use (and when...) but am putting together a bit of a crew of the western reaper minis with this chap providing medicinal and room clearance support.
This guy is Gon'Tarr, Orc Shaman (SKU 3879) in metal from Reaper. I thought he needed a hat since his head was so flat. At first I wanted a bowler hat, but I didn't have one laying around so he got a fancy feathered one instead which suits him just fine. I decided he had been around a while, so a wily dangerous middle-aged orc (or half-orc). His face was hard to get to hiding under the hat, so its kinda a mess.
Rescued this pair from the Box of Goodwill over the summer, and tried for a quick tabletop job during my Thanksgiving paint binge. Didn't quite get them finished in November, but they are done now. Spent way too much time on them because I didn't start with a color scheme in mind and ended up having to repaint a couple areas.
I constructed this in the 2018 Bones Mash-up at Reapercon. The wings do not go with the body, and one of the arms is not original. I forget what the weapon was but I cut it off the bone handle and added a wicked looking blade from my bits box. He was kind of boring all in grey and white, so I added a dab of blood, and put some orange into his bat wings. He's on a Secret Weapon base that has added sand to fill in weird gaps.
Well, I figured that the market for cactus-folk was small enough that I shouldn't wait on it, so I decided to get to work on a Saguaro Cowboy and a Cactus Dryad. I got the inspiration to get up and get to work when I saw a picture of a crested saguaro:
which really settled the question of "how do I put dryad hair on a cactus lady and make it work?"
Twisted up an armature for a dude and a lady,
and started slapping green stuff on.
Here's a very rough outline of the dryad's torso with a preliminary series of grooves, almost none of which will probably make it to the finished product.
Both she and the lariat-wielding saguaro vaquero will have blunt, stubby feet and arms with little muscle or joint definition, both because that's how saguaros do and because I am...not a professional sculptor by a long chalk.
C&C welcome; this is the rough draft of the first draft of each of them and I'll be doing a lot of trimming and repositioning, no doubt.
